Dispelling the Myths About Republicans

Two questions to answer: 1) Who are wealthier, Republicans or Democrats? 2) Who controls the Wall Street Investment Banking firms, Republicans or Democrats?

In future posts I am going to state some of the myths about Republicans and provide you the real facts.  There is a lot of misperception about Republicans, who they are and what they stand for.

So, if you have questions about Republicans, I would like you to ask them here.  If you have heard that Republicans are racist, white elitist country club members without any compassion for the poor or the working man, ask here what the real facts are.

Since I have limited time to write today, I will leave you with two questions to answer.

1.  Who are wealthier, Republicans or Democrats?

2.  Who controls the Wall Street investment banking firms, Republicans or Democrats?

Please put your answers to the questions in the comments.  I will be back tomorrow to respond.

10. No elected member of Congress or Senate or Judiciary, or President, may ever work as a lobbyist after their service in Washington....ever! This is how you fix Congress and strengthen our democracy.

Michael, I think ALL Americans would agree with this plan. I think we should make a concerted effort to not re-elect any incumbent. The plan is solid. Once again, we live in a Constitutional Republic.

Mr.Aminoff, you may as well say, "All Republicans and Democrats are wealthy" and then ask, "Which Wall Street investment banking firms control the Republicans and Democrats?" Wall Street is the one who has the politicians in their pockets since both parties have bailed out the banks from time to time, the last Administration to do that being Barack Obama's, and prior to his, George W. Bush's.

Just curious how one becomes a "legal" woman/man? or are you referring to immigration?

Our country began with a two-party political system and it has worked for over 200 years. But, the Republican party has almost completely eroded in California over the past 20 years and look what's happened to our state. We are being called the new Greece. Please, Mr. Aminoff, how can the Republican party resurrect itself in California? We need opposing viewpoints in our state, county and local governments or we may as well wash out to sea.
